The playoffs have not yet begun and the Steelers enter as the No. 2 seed in the AFC but the NFL already has declared them champions ... of merchandise sales.

More Steelers merchandise was sold during the 2010 season than any other NFL team, according to NFLShop.com, which counted sales from April 1, 2010 through Jan. 2.

And the top-selling jersey? Steelers safety Troy Polamalu, a candidate for NFL defensive player of the year, beat them all and was the only non-quarterback among the top eight jersey sales last season.

The Dallas Cowboys had the second-best selling merchandise and reigning Super Bowl champion New Orleans was third.

Following Polamalu in jersey sales were Saints QB Drew Brees, the 2009 league MVP, and popular rookie quarterback Tim Tebow of Denver.

I've heard this mentioned before, but fuck me sideways, I just don't get it.

Are he and his family buying them all up and shipping them to some poor third world country?

What the hell is this guy thinkin', putting Polamalu & Brees in the same sentence as Tim Tebow?  Only in their dreams!

Very interesting.  Really odd that a player with several years' experience, coming off an injury that severely limited his season, on a team that underperformed, jumps to #1.

My hypothesis?  A LOT of #7s went into mothballs in the offseason, replaced by 43.

I'd say that's a wise guess.  Especially since I know specifically of a dad who bought his daughter a new #43 to replace the #7.  (okay, I've let her start wearing her #7 again).

But he's a Christian...which MUST mean he's a good QB.
